Latinos' Economic Recovery: Postsecondary Participation and Hispanic-Serving Institutions
Gastic, Billie; Nieto, David Gonzalez
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v34 n10 p833-838 2010
The majority of Latinos currently enrolled in colleges and universities attend Hispanic-serving Institutions (HSIs), or those institutions where Latino undergraduate full-time equivalent enrollment equals or exceeds 25% of the student population. While HSIs only make up 7% of colleges and universities in the U.S., they enroll more than half of all Latino undergraduates. Given the concentration of Latino students in such a small (but quickly growing) number of colleges and universities, HSIs are critical institutions to examine to understand how to promote Latinos' postsecondary opportunity--and, by extension, create the conditions for their economic recovery and success.
